In terms of specific tactics that work well in converting free users to paid subscribers, knowing the kind of users you're dealing with is important. Have a concrete follow-up plan on day three or day seven, or one or two days before the subscription is expiring. Obviously, we don’t want to offer too much because you won’t be able to monetize well then. Focus a lot on the value that the product is giving you. So, for a meditation app, use reminders like ‘Did you enjoy the meditation’ and ‘Would you come back tomorrow?', try to get a lot of feedback from them earlier, ahead of time so that you know where you stand before you offer any promotion to them later on.
